A new day with new increased credit card bonuses! This time, it is business owners that have something to be excited about, as 2 credit cards that do not usually offer a welcome bonus now do! Those who prefer to earn Membership Rewards points can earn a welcome bonus with The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express, and those who prefer cash-back can earn a welcome bonus with the American Express Blue Business Cash™ Card.
Here is everything you need to know!
Welcome Bonus Details for Amex Blue Business Cards
Welcome Bonus: Earn 15,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $3,000 in eligible purchases on the card within your first 3 months of card membership. Terms apply.
The no-annual-fee Amex Blue Business Plus card earns 2x Membership Rewards points per $1 on all eligible purchases, up to $50,000 per year. This makes it a stellar option to pair alongside a card like The Business Platinum Card® from American Express or American Express® Business Gold Card to earn double points on purchases outside of those cards’ bonus categories (see rates and fees).
You can also add employee cards at no additional cost to help you earn even more Amex Membership Rewards points (see rates and fees). The card also keeps your purchases covered with up to $50,000 per calendar year in purchase protection coverage.
Welcome Bonus: Earn a $250 statement credit after you spend $3,000 in purchases on your card in your first 3 months. Terms apply.
With the Amex Blue Business Cash card, you’ll earn 2% cash-back on all eligible purchases, up to $50,000 per calendar year. This is quite the compelling cash-back rate, especially for a no-annual-fee card, as business owners who are able to meet that spend threshold will earn $1,000 in cash-back each year (see rates and fees).
All in all, if you don’t already have one of these cards, now is a great time to do so. Whether you prefer cash-back or flexible rewards, both cards are a fantastic option, do not charge an annual fee, and do not usually offer a welcome bonus to newly approved cardholders, so capitalize on these deals before they are gone!
